Go to Business tab, Business Income and Expenses.

This assumes you are a solo owner, and not an S Corp or C Corp.

There are 17 unique categories for entering business expenses in the TurboTax Home and Business program for a Schedule C.  If you have a particular expense that does not fit in the other 16 categories listed use Other Miscellaneous Expenses at the bottom of the list.

On the next screen, click on Edit for your business listed.
On the next screen scroll down to Business Expenses
